Greg Stolze M ’03 won first place in the Chicago Tribune’s Great Chicago Ghost Story Contest. His entry “2122 North Clark” beat some 800 entries. Cultural critic Julia Keller said Stolze’s story is “beautifully written, and the story is told primarily through dialogue. Moreover, it's truly a Chicago
ghost story. It simply couldn't be set anywhere else. Ghosts are all about vengeance and score-settling—hey, it sounds like the Chicago political scene!—and in this marvelously atmospheric tale, a crooked, diabolical kind of justice prevails.”
Greg is the husband of Martha Stolze, North Central’s director of admission. His comments about the win were featured in the Tribune’s Nov. 2 issue.
